What is Legalization of Documents?

Let’s say you have a business or live outside Bulgaria. You need your documents that were issued here, so you can use them abroad or vice versa. It’s likely you’ll stumble into some difficulties if these were issued by state institutions (diplomas, birth records, conviction status certificates), other types of certificates, company documentation (registration, good standing, etc.). To authenticate your document for use in a country different from the issuing one, it needs legalization.

The Process…

Legalization lets you use a document issued by the authorities of one country, before the authorities of another one. If, for example, you got your high school diploma in Bulgaria and would like to apply to a university in Germany, you’ll probably have to translate and legalize it, along with other documents intended for your stay.

Translation and Localization of Mobile Apps

With the continuous growth of the global market for smartphones and related technology, comes the need for translation and localization of mobile apps.

Apple’s AppStore has over a million apps developed for iOS. Google, on the other hand, uses open source for its Android apps (Android—the OS with the highest number of active devices). Android smartphones has 50% of the global market share. For a short period of time, Windows Phone apps collected numerous impressive reviews. Apple’s UI is localized in over 30 languages, having over 50 keyboard layouts with specific language functions and voice control able to recognize over 20 languages.

Mobile apps are not only games and social media plug-ins. Large online retailers apps are becoming more and more popular. You can easily purchase various types of goods and services through a mobile app. Whatever its intended purpose, your customers will expect their app to be available in their native language. Even if you offer it for free, it will definitely need localization.

Important Facts About Legal Translation

We often hear, “Why is it so important for legal documents to be professionally translated?” We, at Mitra Translations, believe that the inaccurate translation of legal documentation may lead to serious negative consequences.

A good legal translation depends on the accurate selection of terms and whether they are relevant to the respective legal system. Legal terminology, whether it is intended for laws, contracts, patents, confidentiality agreements, or witness statements, always has to be properly translated into the respective language. From a legal standpoint, it is extremely important for each term to be translated accurately.

You don’t have to be a lawyer to understand that the terms used in legal documents often have multiple meanings.

As with any other type of written document, legal documentation may include content intended to persuade or influence the reader. Adherence to style isn’t always easy and requires close attention by both legal experts and linguists. Similarly, legislative texts or commercial legal statements are both open to interpretation. Clarity is important in order to avoid confusion or misinterpretation.

Top Languages Used On the Internet

The Internet is much more dynamic than it was 10 years ago. Today, it is a much bigger, much more diverse and accessible place. According to Internet World Stats, there are now 3,345,832,772 active Internet users in the world. That’s almost half the world population. So what languages do they speak?

Currently, about half (48.1%) of all Internet users are in Asia; nearly a fifth (18.1%) are in Europe; another 10.1% are in Latin America and the Caribbean; 9.8% are in Africa; 3.7% are in the Middle East; and 0.8% are in Oceania and Australia. These millions and millions of users speak a wide range of mother tongues.

If we look at the W3Tech’s ranking of languages for published web content available, we’d see that the number of English speakers on the Internet has actually started to decrease.

Can’t I just Use Google Translate?

If you’re a professional translator or work in the translation industry, we bet you’re tired of hearing this question over and over again.

But if you’ve ever tried to use Google Translate to try communicate with someone in another language, you probably realized pretty quickly that Google Translate just isn’t worth it.
